"sleep at ease (if you get a chance!)"
This monitor does what it says on the tin, and there’s no doubt that if you need to monitor your child’s breathing, for whatever reason, then you can easily overcome the few negative issues I have found while using it.

The sensor which monitors breathing is easily placed under the mattress (I would imagine it could fit in any cot or bed) and a cable connects this to the parent unit in the same way as a modem type cable. There’s no mains connection, just 2 AA batteries (included), so easy to take on holiday. All very simple and idiot proof, took me about 3 minutes to get it set up.

First problem I came across was deciding where to position the parent unit. It’s not wireless, and although it comes with an extension cable, it wasn’t long enough to reach our room and ended up on the landing to begin with. This still wasn’t perfect however, as the cable had to drape across the room. Consequently, I had a few near misses in the middle of the night, tripping over it! In the end, I realised that the best place for the unit was attached to the cot – there really wasn’t any need for me to see the light flashing. I knew that if she stopped breathing, the alarm would sound and that was peace of mind enough for me. There is a little green light which flashes to indicate breathing but you don’t really need to see it and it’s actually quite bright in a dark room, so best off somewhere in the nursery. Believe me, if the alarm goes off, you’ll know about it.

This brings me to my second issue, which is more of a warning, really. When (if – if you’re one of the lucky ones) your baby wakes in the night and you pick them up, remember to switch the monitor off first or you’ll wake the whole house. With older children asleep, this could be very annoying! The alarm will sound after 20 seconds of no breathing. Make sure you switch it back on again when (if, in my case) they settle back down to sleep.

In summary, if you have a baby who sleeps on their tummy or you are concerned about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or any other conditions which require you to monitor your child’s breathing then this monitor does the job efficiently and conveniently. I would happily recommend it and think it is good value for money – after all what price would be too much? This could potentially save your child’s life. All I hope for now is that my baby will start to sleep long enough for me to really get the full use out of the monitor!

"Great for piece of mind"
The nanny monitor is a product that is a must for any nervous parents. It helped to give me the extra reasurance that i needed to sleep when my baby did.

The manual is simple to follow & even gives you resuscitation instructions incase anything did happen.

The sensor is a large rectangular pad that slots under the matress & sets an alarm off if your baby's breathing drops below 8 breaths per minute. I tested this with my eldest daughters doll before using on my baby which gave me extra reassurance that it worked.

Advantages:- large sensor pad (largest on the market).

Loud alarm (good if baby is in his/her own bedroom)

Disadvantages:- sensor has to be placed on a completely flat surface so if babies bed is a slated base like my cotbed then a piece of plywood etc would need to be placed between the base & matress.

The alarm makes a short bleep when turned on which i found sometimes disturbed my daughter when i'd put her down. (she is a very light sleeper though so i imagine this won't affect most)

"You can relax with this."
I can give nothing but praise for this. It seriously lifts the weight off your shoulders knowing that there is something monitoring the breathing of your baby. You can sleep soundly with this at night.

A flick of a switch and it's turned on. Easy to use, with simple symbols to display whether it's working correctly or not (smiley faces/unhappy faces).

The only thing I forget to do is turn it off when I get Finley out of bed at night for his feed!! So it beeps at me, telling me it can't detect any movement! So I know it's definitely working, and this just gives me even more peace of mind.
